Pretty Ballerinas, pretty feet – find your perfect match at Fashionette
Since the 1950s ballerinas are an all-time shoe-classic. First worn by style icon and actress Audrey Hepburn the shoe quickly became a must-have. The actresses´ childhood dream was to become a ballerina, so the well-known fashion-designer Salvatore Ferragamo created her very own pair of shoes – the ballerinas - for one of her movies. The stylish silhouette of the shoe quickly became Audrey Hepburns trademark and brought her directly to Hollywood. But only after she wore the shoes on a Vogue cover, the hype around the stylish footwear started and the fashion revolution with flat shoes instead of high heels for women began. A new trend was born!
Since then we simply cannot imagine a life without these elegant, but at the same time comfortable shoes. The ballet-inspired shoe creates the illusion of long legs and underlines feminine styles subtly. You can wear them at a city trip with your best friend as well as every day at the office. Ballerinas truly are shoes for every occasion.
Trend meets classic – Ballerinas between the centuries
After the big hype around the shoe ended in the late 1960s, it got a little bit quite around the ballerinas. But not for long, because already in the 1980s the ballerina style was back and still is a trend that we cannot imagine to live without. There is no complete closet without at least one pair of classic ballerinas.
